Panasonic has announced their latest full HD Integrated camera, the AW-HE42, boasting a wide range of interfaces including 3G-SDI/HDMI/IP/Gen lock. This new, integrated camera offers significant improvements in lensing, stabilization and interfacing to prior Panasonic models in this class.
The AW-HE42 is designed to produce high-quality video and offers precise control and movement, ideal for highly demanding remote productions, and for complex IMAG applications. This full HD camera with an integrated rotating base, is equipped with 3G-SDI and a variety of other output connectors.

An Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) ensures that vibrations of the mounted surface caused by doors opening and closing, audio systems and other installed equipment are automatically corrected.
The Panasonic AW-HE42, in both black and white versions, is now available in the Middle East & Africa regions.
